At the national press event for the 2011 Acura TSX Wagon, officials announced that pricing would start at $30,960 (plus $860 destination), reflecting a $1,350 premium over the updated 2011 TSX sedan. Also making an appearance was the updated 2011 RL sporting a less-monolithic grille, thank goodness.
The wagon delivers that performance, luxury, and technology that have made the sedan so appealing, with the added benefit of increased cargo space and flexibility. The wagon will be offered solely with the 2.4-liter, 201-hp four-cylinder engine with a sequential-shift five-speed automatic transmission. This powertrain promises 30 mpg on the highway, while delivering entertaining performance. The V6 is not in the cards, leaving the big engine exclusive to the sedan.
Standard features include a power glass moonroof, dual-zone automatic climate control, leather seats, Bluetooth connectivity, a premium sound system with a USB port and auxiliary jack. Notable upgrades include an eight-inch navigation system with real-time traffic and weather, as well as a premium sound system with a hard drive for music storage.
Where automakers have shied away from wagons, instead offering all-manner of slanted hatchbacks (i.e., Acura ZDX, Honda Crosstour), it is refreshing to see Acura boldly offer a true wagon in the near-lux segment.
